Caltha palustris v polypetala of Gardens


Caltha palustris v polypetala of gardens, Marsh Marigolds are perfect for a wet spot or the bank of a garden stream; Caltha will even grow in standing water. It forms large clumps of glossy leaves, which are obscured in spring by the myriads of 2" shining yellow buttercup flowers that scream for a macro lens. I put one in a pond made from a sunken bathtub and over the years, it has filled the tub displacing everything. Viewed from a distance in this dry rock garden setting it is a startling sight, an Adonis gone mad. Variety polypetala is not double but much larger flowered than the regular wildtype.____ZONE 5
